A three-card set was bundled with each copy of the game released for the North American market. Put together, the cards showed the entire roster against a sky background with the words, "BARCELONA '92" in red and white.
The game could be played in various ways: players could play against each other, or against the computer. Games against the computer were divided into two modes, "Exhibition" or "Tournament". Players could pick from one of the countries around the world to represent in the Olympics.
The player can also use an All-World team, comprising the best players among the non-US squads, including Toni Kukoč, Bill Wennington, Andrew Gaze, Rik Smits and Vlade Divac.
Games could be configured for international 20 minute halves. The court was also different from the usual NBA game since it followed international dimensions, with a trapezoidal area and a different 3-point line.
